The hotel

This very popular adults-only resort is on its own little stretch of paradise, with the pure white flat sands and crystal clear waters of Maroma Beach. This all-suite resort is nestled in carefully manicured gardens with a huge infinity swimming pool at it's heart, offering stunning views of the electric-blue waters of the Caribbean Sea stretching out in front of you. This hotel offers elegance and a wealth of activities that will keep you amused all day. Try a treatment at the spa, tee-off at the nearby golf course, or there are plenty of water sports on offer such as sailing and kayaking.

We stayed at other Secrets properties (Akumal Mexico, Papagayo Costa Rica), so we had high expectations of what Secrets Maroma had to offer. The service was exceptional, the food and cuisine variety was delicious, and the rooms were cozy. Before the trip, we heard that Maroma's beach was top notch, which we found to be true - unlike the other beaches in the area, Maroma had minimal seaweed. We also visited the fitness center, which had a variety of workout equipment, but could feel a bit cramped. Our only hesitation was the "timeshare talk," which was our experience at the other AM Resort locations. At check-in, we were approached to discuss the various upgrades through UVC; however, we voiced that we were not pleased with our previous experiences, and surprisingly, the representative did not push us further. The only other downside, if any, to this property is that the layout wasn't as romantic or isolated(?) as Secrets Akumal. Rather than a more intimate setting, Secrets Maroma had a more open central area, which felt more geared toward larger groups (i.e., friends/family trip, wedding). We could hear music from our partial ocean view room that faced the central resort area, which may or may not be an issue depending on the type of sleeper you are. If you're looking for a great all-inclusive resort for a group of people with a fantastic beach, Secrets Maroma is for you! Read less

This was our 2nd visit to Secrets Maroma, first time was 2017. The resort and grounds are even more pristine this time around. You are welcomed home by all the employees and greeted with smiles and good days from everyone. Our check in was a breeze and our room was ready upon arriving, we met with our incredible concierge Roger. I cannot begin to tell you how amazing Roger is. He attends to every need of every room with class and dignity. His smile is warm and welcoming and after speaking to Roger you know you are in great hands. Roger is the person in life you want to spend your time around as he makes the world a better place. Rooms were clean, spacious and comfortable. You are able to unpack and be home for a week, turn down service & house keeping were wonderful. Pool was clean with a tremendous amount of activities to do. Beach was pristine and the staff was incredible. We reserved beach cabanas for 3 days and our beach concierge Fransisco greeted us with a smile every single day, his laugh is contagious. Fransisco went above and beyond every single time we were on the beach. He made sure we were comfortable and enjoying ourselves, always asking what can i do for you to make your day better. Fransisco well done my friend. Our two servers were Marvin & Balbina, always present always willing to help ensure we didnt have to move from our beach chairs. They always presented us with new drink ideas to try or if we wanted something different for lunch it was never an issue. Restaurants and night entertainment were perfect, men bring a pair of slacks. High light of the trip was the lobby bar silent DJ night. Everyone dancing around listening to head phones was priceless. Preferred club now has an outdoor bar and restaurant (breakfast and lunch) with a fire pit on the beach. Full bar top shelf liquor. Overall the trip was amazing, tough to leave, hope to be back soon to see the wonderful faces especially Roger, Fransisco, Marvin & Balbina. Thank you for an incredible week. Read less

Wow. Just returned from 8 nights at Secrets Maroma. Fantastic resort. First time there. We’ve been to many Secrets over the past nine years and both my husband and I rank Maroma #1 overall. In particular, the entire staff, including cleaning crews, Entertainment team, pool and restaurant wait staffs, UVC staff, store staff, all were so friendly and helpful. It’s hard to explain. Secrets resorts are typically great, but there’s a difference at Maroma. All workers we interacted with went a little further. More helpful, caring, responsive to us. Mentioning this to other guests consistently got the same reaction. The employees go a step above. But I would be remiss to not name some specific people. Six of us had breakfast together each morning at the Preferred Beach Club. GREAT food, excellent service. In particular, Jordan, Carlos, Manny, Richart and Alfredo were amazing, professional, friendly, and attentive. For example, after our first day eating there, whichever one of these men waited on us, they brought our six different drinks to our table as we were seated. So impressive. The following people were also outstanding at their jobs, and deserve specific recognition: UVC – Isaac Bordeaux server - Pablo Entertainment staff - Dana, Jenyfer, Deborah and Sebastian Poolside waiter - Alfredo Himitsu - Jennifer, waiter; Wilbur, chef Preferred Beach Club hostess Rikielle You will not be disappointed!
